Due to the expanding concern around COVID-19, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel Get Your Rear in Gear – Madison. We must prioritize the health and safety of our patients, survivors, caregivers, sponsors, volunteers, employees, and everyone who helps make this event possible. This decision was made after reviewing the recommendations from the CDC and the uncertainty moving forward.
